The Bookshop: CANCELED

With our partners the Empire Area Community Center, we’re pleased to present The Bookshop, a charming 2019 drama inspired by the Penelope Fitzgerald novel. When a free-spirited widow opens a bookshop in a conservative coastal town in England in 1959, she attracts both opposition and support from the local community.  NOTE: this program will be rescheduled at a later date.

On Energy – Choices & Consequences: April 22

Celebrate Earth Day by attending this presentation by Joe DeFors, of Leelanau Energy. Joe will discuss the various sources we have for primary energy  – gas, oil, coal, nuclear, wind and solar – and the long-term impacts of these choices. A question and answer session will follow the presentation, which will take place at the Empire Township Hall at 7:00 pm. NOTE: this program may be rescheduled, pending updated public health advisories.

Their lively meetings are open to the public, with guests always welcome. A list of upcoming selections can be found on our calendar.
